The Funk Hunters were born when Nick Middleton and Duncan Smith met while attending film school in Canada, and ever since has been both a studio project and live juggernaut ever since. In a sea of carbon-copy producers, the duo has cultivated their signature sound by creating forward-thinking electronic music that is influenced by old-school soul, funk, and hip-hop.
Earlier this year, The Funk Hunters teased two very different but equally catchy singles, “Turn Down the Silence” and “Party Rockin‘” off their debut album, leaving fans and tastemakers alike wondering what the dynamic duo had up their sleeves. Now the wait is over – The Funk Hunters have unleashed their much anticipated first album, “Typecast,” and it's nothing short of a sonic saga.
Throughout the course of 11 tracks, the duo carries the listeners through the spectrum, from the jazzy, feel-good “Hands Up,” to the hip-hop anthem “Ready to Go” and the sultry, slow-burning closers “Till AM” and “In The Right Spot.” The album features a stunning selection of guest vocalists, including Grammy-Winning vocalist WANZ (from Macklemore fame), the voice of iconic UK legend Dynamite MC, and many more
The Funk Hunters manage to make such a myriad of both genres and textures flow seamlessly, attesting to their prowess as producers and creators of unique, compelling vibes. No matter the occasion or the mood, “Typecast” has it covered. Press play on this exquisite compilation and let The Funk Hunters orchestrate your life.
